DELPHI PRESCHOOL

A Home Away From Home​

At Delphi Preschool, we understand just how vital it is to parents for their young ones to be in a safe and caring environment. 

Starting An Education The Right Way

Our preschool and childcare is a home away from home and our teachers focus on creating a safe, warm, loving and nurturing environment where children feel secure and loved at all times. This environment makes it easy for children to learn, to make friends and to develop social skills that will empower them for the rest of their lives.

Children are motivated by their own desire to make sense of their world. They learn through interaction with the materials and people in their environment. Play provides this interaction, learning occurs when a child is actively involved. Therefore, we believe in hands-on experience, learning creatively and learning through play.

Delphi Preschool strives to create the perfect safe and healthy atmosphere for your child to learn, play and grow.

ART & MUSIC PROGRAM

Why are art and music important in early learning?

Art has long been a traditional and important aspect of early childhood development as part of developing the “whole” child. Young children benefit from artistic expression, gaining a sense of satisfaction as a result of the control they have over the materials and the decisions they will make about how to use the materials. When a child decides what he or she will create in an art or crafts project, it may be the first opportunity he or she has to make an individual decision or choice.

Music, like art, is another valuable part of early childhood learning and growth. The primary way in which young children learn about their world is through the magic and imagination of play. Including musical elements in play helps expose children to a richer experience and encourages their natural desire to express themselves through music.

Both art and music are key elements in our preschool program. From string swirled in paint and pressed on paper, to young faces painted like tigers, to the children dancing and singing in a rain dance, there is never a dull moment in our preschool!
